This hotel is Awesome! The rooms look like they were remodeled last week and the service with a smile is always a plus. I had breakfast, made to order omelets and waffles with a buffet. When I'm in Austin this will be my home away from home.

Whether you have a UT student in your family or just want to see Austin, the Doubletree Suites is a great location with excellent service! A brief walk to all UT sporting events and Erwin Center concerts, easy access to major highway, and the rooms are updated and very clean. Definitely recommend!

This hotel is truly within walking distance to the Frank Erwin Center in Austin. We also were able to walk through the neighborhood to eat dinner. We found a nice sidewalk bistro to eat at. It was also very close to Franklin's famous BBQ. Easy in and out of the hotel right on the feeder road.

We came in town for a show at the Frank Erwin center. Easy walk from hotel, 24 hour restaurant outside was good too. Parking cost 15 a day. Would have been nice if that would have been included. Would highly recommend.

I've stayed here a few times over the years because it's close to downtown (20-25 minute walk) but right on the I-35 and with plenty of parking. It was only on this last visit that I discovered that they actually charge $15 for parking. That's ~$10 cheaper than the downtown hotels but you're a long way from the centre. Having... More

Conveniently located to town and a 10 minute walk into the campus area. A cemetery behind the hotel and noisy, busy Interstate on the other side. A Denny's diner in the parking lot which is a great option for breakfast. The hotel was modern and welcoming. Everything was clean and in working order except the alarm service. Service was very...

We have stayed at the Doubletree Austin University for the past three years. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. The staff is very personable and professional. The location to the University is perfect - easily walkable. And the warm, chocolate chip cookies are outstanding!

Conveniently located off of the highway and walking distance to campus. On the flip side, the traffic is so loud in some rooms that it will wake you up. They eventually upgraded me to an honors room that was much better. Had I been there from the start I would have given a much better review for the friendly staff.... More
